Hi,
I'm looking to buy a new racket and am having a hard time deciding between the two listed. Perhaps briefly a few sentences about my game level. I am 23 years old, played in my youth for 3 or 4 years in a tennis club, but only training, no tournaments or the like. Now I have started to play again quite regularly for half a year (about once per week, as a hobby). Since I started playing, I play on a Wilson NCourt 100. It is quite light and weighs 265 grams. I would describe myself as an all-round player who likes to play moderate topspin. In general, I would say I am somewhere between a beginner and an intermediate player.
Now to the tested rackets, I know both rackets are quite different in their characteristics, but since I was not quite sure what I wanted I tested them.
I really enjoyed the power of the Burn 100. Unfortunately, I sometimes had the feeling that I lacked control. I even tended to hit the balls too far with the racquet.
I liked the Clash 100 from his control well, especially in direct comparison to the Burn I sometimes lacked the power a bit. What I had thought was that you could maybe improve the power a little by a power string. I played the Alu Power 128 on the Burn and I really liked it, so maybe it would make sense to choose a power string.
Both rackets have pleased me in direct comparison, even if they are quite different. Currently, I'm tending more towards the Clash 100 with a power string, but I am not really into this topic, so I am definitely open to recommendations. Also tending to the normal 100 version and not the Clash Tour/Pro version, since as I said I'm coming from a 265-gram racquet. What would you guys recommend? Which one of the two is also more forgiving? Which of the two would also make more sense in the long run if I would improve my game? What do you think of my string idea?
Thanks in advance!

Clash has lots of power esp on serves and committed ground stokes. Ball tends to fly and lack control with poor technique and unwillingness or inability to swing effectively on ground strokes IMO. This can be mitigated some by stringing it tighter at 57 or more pounds. I do like mine quite a bit however with some caveats. Planning on trying burn at some point esp given cost differences between the 2. Nice option might be Prince TT Warrior and price is outstanding now. Good luck.
